Authentic Jamaican hot, spicy seasoning. The tradition of "jerking" meat is unique to Jamaica. It was originally applied to wild boar by the fugitive "maroons" in the seventeenth century. Jerk seasoning is a specific blend of herbs and spices and is very hot. It is now an integral part of Jamaican life. Streetside vendors ply a thriving trade in jerked pork and chicken which they cook over vast barbeques of hot charcoal and smoking branches of pimento wood. The aroma is irresistible and the taste delicious.
